Now for her book:

"Plain and Simple Truths: Lesson Plans with Hands-On Activities to Teach Gospel Truths to All Ages"

Plain and simple Truths is a practical teaching resource that consists of engaging hands-on activities that are used to teach religious ideas. It's like Cub Scout Science meets Religion 101. The flexible lesson plans include a list of materials available in most homes, how to introduce the topic, easy-to-follow instructions to carry out the activities, discussion suggestions, and links to additional resources such as scripture references, LDS General Conference talks, and videos. This resource can be used for Family Home Evening, the new youth curriculum, Sunday School, Priesthood classes, and Relief Society lessons. It's appropriate for learners of all ages and those with cognitive and other types of disabilities.
